New to TV Advertising

Welcome to the first step for you and your brand on the road to advertising on TV, one of the world most trusted forms of advertising.

Why Advertise on TV?

Firstly, here are some stats to back up your decision to come and consider TV advertising:

TV has unbeatable scale and reach. No other form of advertising can build scale as quickly and powerfully. This is crucial as no-one can truly predict who might end up a customer. Advertising with mass reach builds brand desirability and creates fame, which is the most effective advertising strategy. Total TV in Ireland reaches 94.4% of the population in a single month.

TV is brand safe. TV in Ireland is full of wonderful, high-quality content which broadcasters invest in heavily. This, alongside the tight regulation which governs TV content and advertising, makes it a safe environment for viewers and brands.

TV advertising is now more effective than ever. Television is rocket fuel for brands. It is irreplaceable and there is nothing waiting in the wings that can do what TV does. Whether in the short term or the long, it delivers the most profit at the greatest cost-efficiency and for the lowest risk.

Now that you are convinced that TV advertising is for you, next let’s convince you why to choose Virgin Media Television:
